These beautiful blue fowl originated in Andalusia, a province of Spain, but have long been known in England and the United States. They are magnificent to look at with their graceful, stately carriage and delicately blue-laced plumage; and this marks them as an especially fine breed for exhibition. The ideal feather color is a beautiful slatey blue with a narrow lacing of darker blue. The male has a cape of lustrous blue-black, sometimes shading almost to a dove gray, and feathers from this are fine material for tying artificial flies. Skin color is white and shanks and toes are a leaden blue. Andalusian hens are fine layers of white or slightly tinted eggs with very little tendency towards broodiness. Both sexes have long, deep bodies, well set up, with plenty of vitality. In size they are bigger than Leghorns, about the same as Minorcas.

THE COLOR BLUE: A unique genetic feature of this breed is the constant recurrence in the offspring of not only all blue chicks, but also the black, white, and black-white colors used in the original matings many generations ago to produce these blue birds. All of these chicks carry the blue genes and when mated black on white or with other blues in turn produce many blue offspring. In our breeding flocks, however, only blue males of the finest color are used.
Approximately 50% of the baby chicks will be all blue. The other 50% will be black, white, and black/white combinations.

As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Questions & Answers
If I were to get only one of this breed would it be more likely for it to be blue?
There is no guarantee on if it will be blue. Approximately 50% of the chicks will be all blue. The other 50% will be black, white or black/white combinations. You would have better odds if you order more than 1 chick.
